I'm a lifelong sports fan, travel addict, and naturalized Bostonian with a weakness for European soccer. I delved into journalism in 2008, went to my first major tournament in 2012 (the Euro), and now am working as a freelance columnist and Per Mertesacker impersonator.

Clark, you have a good insight on European soccer (pretty impressive for a Bostonian, I went crazy looking for a football buddy while I was there). Your articles have great content, but it just doesn't flow too well, IMO. Just a little feedback here, I'm not an internet bully. And yeah, your Bio does need some makeover. I want to know more about you! :)

I have a quick question for you. Why does B/R's Dortmund homepage have links to Mario Goetze and Robert Lewandowski's Instagram accounts? For instance, right now we're getting a bunch of pictures of Lewy in Bayern gear and training with them on the Dortmund homepage, which isn't exactly the most pleasant thing for fans to be looking at. Not to mention the fact that for a lot of fans, it's hard not to feel sad whenever we see Goetze. I don't know whether you'd have any power to change this, but could you perhaps try to change this? I figured I should go to you about this since you're basically the #1 Bundesliga person on here.
If you can't do anything about this, that's fine, but I and other fans would appreciate it if you could perhaps try to get this changed.
Thanks very much! Can't wait for the new season, by the way! I really like your work!
Many a reporter have taken to calling the respective team of a country by its native name (Selecao; L’ equipe, etc.) in their reporting. More and more articles refer to the German side as Die Mannschaft. Nobody in Germany calls the national team “die Mannschaft”. It’s either Nationalelf or Nationalmannschaft. In your July 8, 2014 piece “Germany Justify Joachim Low's Decision-Making in Stunning Win Over Brazil” you don’t use die Mannschaft but rather the other to Nationalelf and Nationalmannschaft. Thanks for getting it right and for not being as pathetic as many of your colleagues who want to show some local expertise but just have it wrong.
I enjoy your writing!
'I'm a lifelong sports fan, travel addict, a Ronaldo HATER and naturalized Bostonian with a weakness for European soccer.' Come on Clark, your bio needs some editing.
Hey Clark, in light of recent injuries and the draw against Cameroon, what do you think Germany's best lineup for the World Cup is? (and formation) Also no more tiki taka please, I feel Loew is letting Pep influence him
Hi, Clark. I have been reading quite a lot of your articles lately and I loved it especially the one about Bayern poaching talent. Keep up the good work!!
What are the chances of getting an article on the impact of Kiessling's phantom goal? I feel terrible for the Wolves missing out on CL footy because of it. I'm surprised more hasn't been made of the situation.
Great articles and posts. Love your coverage of bundesliga, Germany and others. You are one of my favorite writers since I almost always agree with your opinion. Keep up the good articles man.
